Swords and Spindles' brand of history is entertaining, informative and unforgettable. Master Christopher and Mistress Agnes will be offering you their special brand of entertainment and bringing the past to life. Master Christopher is barber surgeon to the desperate, hailing from the port of Bideford on Devon’s northern shore. Headache, broken bones and toothache all get Master Christopher’s unique, authentic treatment. Mistress Agnes is a dame of uncertain vintage, who will dispense a herbal cure or two, as long as you say naught to the witchfinder. Come and learn what they have been up to in Devon in the fifty years since 1620.
